Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?!?
For those unaware, Scott Fischer is Jonathan Stickland's opponent in the Republican primary.
Stickland's response sums up the pertinent facts:
"I've served my district for nearly 4 years now and have never tried to represent Austin insiders, only the conservatives in my District," he said in a written statement to the Tribune. "I'm proud to have their support in my re-election campaign."The special-interest crowd's reaction was predictable:
I am with fmr @GovernorPerry. Pastor Scott Fisher will be an excellent pro-life legislator. #txlege https://t.co/dFETPSfevM— Joe Pojman, Ph.D. (@joepojman) December 29, 2015
Brent Mayes, whom we've endorsed in SD-24, said it best:
Bottom Line: This is Rick Perry's most indefensible move since HPV. Perry has now endorsed in three #TXLEGE primaries this cycle, and in EVERY case he's endorsed AGAINST a vocal opponent of corporate welfare. A clear pattern is emerging.
